Don't know if anyone can shed any light on this...
I am working on a Director project that has to link to and
open Word DOCs. I have a problem whereby when a DOC is opened, the
Mac does not seem to be switching properly into Word. What happens
is: click thumbnail (running handler to open DOC, using Buddy API
xtra); Word starts to open the DOC; DOC window appears in front of
projector Window, but the Mac titlebar seems to 'stick' in the
projector. I can edit the DOC, use keyboard commands to save etc.,
but no menus are visible due to the 'ProjectorName.osx' title bar.
I can switch to Word with Apple-tab, but not by clicking in the
A few extra notes:
• The projector resizes the screen to 800x600, but even
with this feature disabled the problem persists.
• I have tried creating a projector with the Full
Screen option checked and unchecked, and with the visible title bar
option checked and unchecked - no difference.
• The problem has just arisen; essentially identical
projectors (ie. differences are only in graphics) have run OK.
• We have used a couple of different xtras to open the
files, for reasons unconnected with this issue. However we have
been using BuddyAPI for a while, so I am reasonably sure that the
problem is not related to this.
• Ensuring that unnecessary apps are closed, to ensure
plenty of free memory, makes no difference.
It seems the problem is related to the Full Screen option in
projector creation. (While previous full screen projectors based on
the same movie did not show the problem, since the issue came up
non-full screen projectors work OK, and full screen one don't .
Unfortunately I need to use full screen mode as I don't want a
title bar at the top of the screen, and want to use the full
(re-sized to 800x600 screen area.
